Melvin received some very special balloons. All 33 trapped Chilean miners were safely rescued last night. As part of the celebration, they released helium balloons! They were red, white and blue with the Chilean flag on them. Melvin was very glad to receive these balloons. As well as being the colors of their flag, Melvin sees the red as signifying safety and security now that everyone is back on ground level; white for the peace this has brought to all the miners, their families and to many around the world that watched the rescue efforts; and blue for the fact that the whole world is singing in expression of the success!
Melvin now feels connected to the rescue mission and says "thank you".
